According to the employees of the museum, during the renovation the building received its original appearance. Previously, it was a residential two-story house built in 1914. A most interesting feature is that the building was completely preserved during the Great Patriotic War because in its construction special technologies were used that made the building resistant to destruction.

Making a tour of the museum one can learn about the history of the law enforcement system in Belarus from antiquity to the present day.
